You sometimes get the very, very gung-ho cowboy side of it. Alexandra: Yes, yes, exactly. And I read in the bio on your website that writing seems to have been your first love, and then you were kind of pulled away from that. You got a degree in psychology…. Darryl: I think so. Other parties kick in. But then you get on with life. Long hours of course, night shifts, those kind of things.
Over 200 book reviews by Darryl Sloan
It was something I needed to devote a lot of time to get done. Darryl: Yeah, I think everything becomes run of the mill at some point. No matter how exciting something starts off or how dedicated you are to it, it will become run of the mill, and then it goes from every day being excited going in, getting things done, because every day is different. Those are the ones that keep you going. But, yeah, like everything, it does become run of the mill at a time, a lot of paper work, a lot of pressure.
And the job changes dramatically between uniform work and detective work. So for your first two years at least in the U. But then when you take a detective exam, became a detective, it becomes more project focused.
Each case is a project in itself. And all of that requires a lot of concentration and sitting down. There are things that lend each other, lend itself to both things. You know, you see some really heroic things in the police, and you see people at very, very low points and people who are very, very angry, a range of emotional experience which you can draw on and then use them. Alexandra: Yes, yeah, that was the thing that struck me when I saw that you had a degree in Criminal Psychology. I thought, oh, you know, writing and policing both are about people at their hearts.
Darryl: Not at the moment. But mostly, I think the key thing for me is the culture, the policing culture, and just the days they love that I can bring to the story of how effects them, and the victims, too. Some people that report things to police, in a lot of ways, the suspects we deal with and the criminals we deal with are victims in their own right. Again, we used to think, given the stories about serial killers come and get us in the night and all these kind of stuff and yeah, that is obviously exciting to read and watch on the big screen.
But most criminals you see are people that have made terrible choices. So often, more of them have made terrible decisions in their lives, and from that environment and situation comes these awful choices that send them down and down and down. The book is trying to look at that angle as well. They are dangerous.

That story sets off one of the key themes to the series. Darryl: Yeah, she is sort of cut off in a storm. So we get to know her straight away. It sets her character quite well for the rest of the books where we see that very human side of her. Alexandra: Yes, yeah, exactly. Darryl: Yeah, the second book is set in Mavenwood. Darryl: Absolutely, absolutely. Because every day, you have a decision to stay on and do a little bit extra for the victims. Do you stay on and try to arrest that suspect, or do you go home to your family?
So you have the elements of children there, and the husband, and all of those things. Darryl: Yeah, absolutely.
Darryl: Originally, she had her children and she wanted something more out of life really. So she wanted something different. Alexandra: Yes, yes. She enjoys the challenge. Soon in paperback, as well. So you can keep reading. And you have a third one soon, hopefully. Alexandra: Yes, yeah. Alexandra: Yeah, all right. Well, thank you so much, Darryl.
